Het Facilitair Bedrijf is a service organization, providing facility management support to all entities of the Flemish government. As a knowledge center, HFB is expected to implement best practices and use data-driven insight to improve performance. Furthermore, the organization recently moved 2,600 public servants from several locations to a newly renovated central office building and wanted to make the merger and new workplace concept a success story.


  • Implementation of IWMS software to run efficient operations at a range of sites actively managed by HFB
  • KPI reporting to gain insight into service performance and improvement areas
  • Reservations software and sensor-based occupancy monitoring to provide real-time assistance to employees in the workplace


  • Clear visibility into FM performance, incl. outsourced maintenance (activities, lead times, problem types, etc.)
  • Service ticket turnaround time reduced by half in 6 months’ time
  • Occupancy monitoring enabled proactive space management
  • Smart reservations and workplace guidance helped employees navigate a new unfamiliar building layout and make better use of the workspaces
